More abut the Kyusu Style:
Originally, this shape also made it easy to pour when sitting on a tatami mat in a traditional Japanese room, as the host would sit across from the guest rather than pour tea from the side or from behind. Kyusu has a cylinder-shaped handle placed 90 degrees from the spout. This is widely used in Japan for preparing sencha green tea. The shape was made to be efficient when pouring tea in small amounts quickly distributing among several cups (the tea at the end of pouring tends to be stronger than at the beginning).
